Web Tools and Application
Below are a handful of the numerous tools and applications which I have developed
for a variety of purposes. Some of these tools were originally developed for
websites I worked on, while others were developed for personal and recreational
use. These tools employ a wide variety of techniques and technologies, and
have been gradually expanding since I began working in web development.
I decided that, as part of my now abandoned Play by Post
system, I needed to create a useful, dynamic map tool to incorporate a crucial part of
table-top gaming which players often lose when their games go online. The tool
uses an HTML5 canvas, the JQuery and JQuery UI libraries, and whole lot of
somewhat cartoony avatars. Each version includes progressively improved and
I eventually abandoned the project when several other "virtual tabletop" services
emerged that were more robust than what I was building. Still, the project was a
great learning experience.
Map Tool Versions
This tool is just a basic design which I threw together for a small project
I did back when I was working at the University of Washington Mechanical
Engineering Department. The images are from an old webcomic I made as part of
my high school senior project.
This tool features
multi-level image storage and searching, a thumbnail bar, and navigation
and includes some easily changable example styling. This version originally
resolve some cross-browser compatibility issues.
